What is a Country Programme Evaluation (CPE)?

Undertaken by IFAD’s Independent Office of Evaluation (IOE)

Assessment of the performance of project portfolio, non-lending activities and Country Strategic Opportunities Programme (COSOP)

Provides input to formulation of next COSOP

Comprises desk work, self-assessments, extended field mission (July 2011), peer review, comments by stakeholders, revisions, audit trail

Very comprehensive and useful self-assessments received from MoFPED, ESA and PIUs

Final stage: NRTW, Agreement at Completion Point (ACP) and publication & communication

portfolio executed by government and supported by ifad loans grants

Portfolioexecuted by Government and supported by IFAD loans/grants

14 projects supported by 16 loans and one BSF grant

Total approved IFAD lending US$294 million ~ 21% of total project costs

First 5 loans (1981-94) supported projects initiated and supervised by the World Bank

Nine projects, since 1997, supporting 4 areas:

local government executed agriculture and rural development, two tandems: DDSP-DLSP, AAMP-CAIIP

vegetable oil sub-sector: one tandem VODP 1 & 2

agricultural advisory services & research: NAADS and ATAAS

rural finance - RFSP

Can we trust agricultural GDP data?

performance of government executed portfolio

Performance of Government executed portfolio

Relevant designs but since 2006 issues of adapting to policy changes

Effectiveness moderately satisfactory but recent challenges

Improvement in some efficiency indicators

Rural poverty impact assessed moderately satisfactory, best for household income and assets

Sustainability is a serious issue

Innovations are few and scaling up is limited

performance of non lending activities

Performance of non-lending activities

Significant IFAD investment and participation in policy dialogue during early PMA period. Less inclusive policy dialogue processes after 2006. Agenda of 2004 COSOP defined in terms of “IFAD’s opposition to government policies”.

Knowledge management neglected till recently where major investments have been made

Partnerships with Government, World Bank and AfDB function well and useful partnerships with PSOs and CSOs have been developed. However, IFAD and AfDB need to make joint supervision of CAIIP.

Country grants overall relevant and effective

cosop performance

COSOP Performance

Relevant 1998 and 2004 COSOPs, but some strategic re-orientations since 2006/07 conflict with IFAD policies, e.g. on Rural Finance

Many relevant elements, but only VOPD, applying a value chain approach, ensures effective coherence

Lending pipeline 2004 COSOP not realised ($18 m for agri marketing/processing programme and $25 m for integrated community development in northern Uganda)

4 months before expiry of PBA period 2007-2009, $37 m of the PBA remained uncommitted – last moment solution: supplementary loans/grants for DLSP (20 m) and CAIIP (17 m)

Policy dialogue agenda largely defined in terms of IFAD’s disagreement with government and no budget for policy work

No regular COSOP reviews and revisions



Include major support for northern Uganda; either IFAD should join muti-donor support for PRDP2 or go alone with innovative programme in one or two districts, but aligned to PRDP2

Replicate experiences from VODP – value chain approach and PPP – and apply to other sub-sectors/commodities (dairy, animal feed industry ? ?)

Define realistic and joint policy agenda, and identify/allocate resources required for its implementation

Improve project results – ensure synergies, capacity development, environmental management, sustainability, scaling up

Functional/workload analysis to determine staff requirements and division of labour in IFAD’s country programme management

three key themes for discussion
Three Key Themes for Discussion

Theme 1: Opportunities and challenges for developing public private partnerships in smallholder agriculture

Theme 2: Geographic and sub-sector options for future IFAD-Government partnerships, including IFAD’s contribution to regional integration

Theme 3: Strengthening results by developing a coherent and integrated country programme
